The benefits of keeping a digital journal over a classic, hand-written journal are clear and growing every year. It is now more secure, private, convenient and enjoyable to keep a digital journal than the more old fashioned methods.

As I speak to you through email and social media, however, there is one aspect of hand-written journals that many of you aren’t willing to fully let go of- the hand-written part.
